On the top floor of the Bayoke tower, there is a restaurant that serves a buffet of international cuisine with stunning views. Although the food is not of exceptional quality, it's worth going to dinner one night, or even just for a drink to see the wonderful views and experience riding in the elevator of the hotel, which in a few seconds, takes you to the top floor. The buffet is priced at around € 15 per person, and you can eat Asian, Italian or Spanish food. An interesting experience, which may well put a dent in your visit to Bangkok.
Khaosan Road is, without a doubt, the most populated tourist street around Bangkok. No wonder the leisure activities offered on this street present a variety of choice. An example of these leisure activities are the varied food stalls there, with different types of food such as: Pad thai (the most popular) meat Stews , different types of Thai Soups Grilled meat, Fruit Kebabs Pancakes , Fried insects and Coconuts (to drink the liquid inside the price . The price of a plate or piece can be between 10 and 75 baht (between 0.2 and 1.5 €).
This restaurant, with 20 years of experience under its belt, is one of the best places in Chiang Mai. You can have dinner (if there's room) on the terrace overlooking the river, or you can make a reservation in the boat that leaves at 8:00 p.m. You can dine midstream every day, but there's an extra cost. In bhats it costs about 100 extra. The price of food is more expensive than the local restaurants, but the food is pretty good and you can enjoy the live music from the two gentlemen ve play the acoustic guitar at sunset. Or they have two bands that play really well at night. You can also go just to grab a beer and listen to music, knowing that it's a very small space in the room where the band is. A beer costs about 80 Bhats and dinner usually costs around 250 Bhats per person. The restaurant is open from 10 am - 1 am. I don't recommend going to any other Riverside restaurants in this chain, like the one across the street. The owners are the same and they have a nice terrace, but the river and the whole atmosphere in the Riverside area is original.
The dinner cruise on the river was spectacular. Upon entering you take a picture and then on the boat they put it on the table for you to buy. Thanks to our guide we knew when to get in line to be the firsts at the buffet. And so, we were. The food was very good, especially the spicy frankfurt! the prawns didn't have much flavor. The environment was very lively, but we were there more to enjoy the dinner with friends and take lots of pictures. The night time scenery was spectacular.
First day in Bangkok: we arrived very tired as it is a very long journey. We have seen very little on the long market street plan. We felt good despite the poverty that is reflected in certain aspects of looking around the city (although everyone has an iPhone) which is a bit contradictory. Despite the heat and humidity, I feel good. Tomorrow begins the good stuff.
Thai Cooking School , or "Thai Orchid" began only 1 year ago and that is an advantage for the students ve study there. There are the same amount of students that there are in other schools, but best thing about this school is definitely the teacher. Raat is a woman devoted to the kitchen and teaching, ve pays special attention to the ingredients. The course begins with a visit to the market to choose the raw material and continues with a lecture, and ends with a practical class and the tasting of dishes cooked by the students themselves. The half-day course costs between 650 Bhats (reserve at Tulip Green House) and 800 Bhats.
This is a huge restaurant right in front of the entrance to the Chiang Rai Night Bazaar. It has outdoor seating and a large room with a shared bar. The meat is displayed near the grill cook and their's an aquarium with fish. Here, you can try both national dishes and international dishes. The service is very good, the cleanliness exquisite, and the food basic. But the price is right! Well, for us at least it was very cheap in relation to the service, but of course, here, you can eat for 2€, where 6 or 7€ would be considered expensive. The best thing is that they make really good coffee.
The Coca family (do not think badly of the name), has dedicated over 20 years to restoration and has several locations scattered around Bangkok. I visited a friendly local restaurant that can be found in a Thai style house from the time of King Rama VI, in the heart of Silom Road. It has a large mango tree in the front yard, which the name of the restaurant originated from. The restaurant, decorated with wooden furniture and flowers, has a friendly atmosphere with an indoor area with air conditioning and an outdoor patio with fans which is very nice and where live Thai classical music is performed at night. The menu offers a wide variety of traditional dishes from all of the regions in Thailand. For example: Po Tuon - seafood with chili paste and coconut milk, seasoned with herbs; Shrimp Pad Thai - large shrimps wrapped in a tortilla, served with crunchy vegetables; Pla Chon Wang Chao - fried fish with fresh coconut sauce, chili and tamarind, served with vegetables; Choo Chee Goong Nang - large freshwater shrimps sauteed in Choo Chee curry sauce. I ate Choo Chee Goong Nang. It was delightfully spicy!
Located on Sukhumvit 12, part of the profits are used to finance social development programs. It has a spacious terrace and air-conditioned dining rooms. The cuisine is very good and not too expensive, you can eat for about 12 euros including drinks and tip. I recommend the Po Pia Tod (vegetable rolls) which are spectacular, as well as the Phad Gung Sod (sautéed rice noodles with prawns). And of course the Kai Hor Bai Toey (fried chicken wrapped in a banana leaf). I could continue recommending dishes but they are all good choices. Also, drink a very cold Shingha.
Greetings, fellow travelers! On the long beach of Lamai, on the west side of Koh Samui is where you'll find the Blue Marina Beach Bar & Restaurant. It's a restaurant that usually offers haute cuisine, but they also offer international and Asian dishes and all kinds of fast food type burgers, club sandwiches, etc. This place is special because you can eat at the edge of the sand while looking at the sea. You can enjoy the view from their wood, bamboo, and teak dinner tables, and they're really low so you can enjoy eating in a typical Asian style. You can also have a coffee or a drink in the shade after or during a sunny day. In fact, this is the ideal place for that. It's a quiet place to relax with the sea breeze in the afternoon. If you are on the beach I recommend stopping by because if you're already staying on the beach you won't appreciate the scene as much.
One of my favorite restaurants on my journey through Thailand was D'Sens restaurant, which is located on the top floor of the Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel. Personally the best part of the restaurant is the breathtaking views in addition to the best view of Lumpini Park opposite the hotel. With a capacity for 120 people, it's only open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11.30 to 14.30 and for dinner Monday through Saturday from 18.00 until 22.00 , closing on Sundays. As far as we're concerned it's true what they say, that it is the best French restaurant around Bangkok.
Greetings travelers. The first thing to point out about this restaurant is the wonderful area in which it is located. Located in a small cove between Chaweng and Baan Hua Thanon, it is a very quiet and pleasant place to have a drink, day or night. As you go in, you'll find a nice garden where you get to go to any of the various wooden-roofed tents to sit and eat. Of course the views overlook the sea. On the menu there's Thai food as well as international dishes and the quality is pretty good. The prices are more than affordable for European travelers and the service is quite efficient. While you wait for food, you can have a swim since you're on the shore of a small cove only 30 seconds away. Definitely a place worth visiting if you want a moment to relax and get away from the humdrum. This restaurant is open daily and is located on the left side of the road going south from Chaweng.
On the beach of Laem Tong Beach are at one end of the beach the Nature Resort whose restaurant is located on a breakwater where you see the wonderful view of the sea. As far as tourists are concerned, it's a great restaurant to eat at. It has traditional Thai cuisine as well as continental. The restaurant's highlight is that it is outdoors but it is covered with a huge wooden structure. From its location, you can see the sea currents entirely. It is a very relaxing spot and the food was not bad. There are hotels very nearby and these types of islands have a caring environment. Few have beachfront, they are usually left untouched and the hotels are usually located 100 meters from the sand. This idea seems great to me, so you can get close to the shore and see nothing but sea, sand and vegetation.
As soon as we arrived at the Sala Daeng Silom Road, the wooden facade of O'Reillys Irish Pub caught our eye, and honestly, we needed a beer. It has two floors, all nicely decorated in wood paneling, a pool table and of course a large TV showing sports matches. We ordered a bucket of beers, and several brands were available including Tiger, Singha and Chang. We had one of each, and for me, the best was definitely Singha. As regards the food, there are appetizers, salads, sandwiches and burgers if you want something quick and easy; if you have more time, though, you can enjoy the barbecue menu, with Thai and international food. They have entertainment throughout the week, and weekday lunches are very cheap. Happy hour between 4 and 7 pm.
Among the many facilities, bars and restaurants in the Bangkok Dusit Thani hotel, the Lobby Lounge was my favorite. It's on the ground floor of the hotel and offers fantastic views of the garden. It's open every day of the week from 7am until 1am. They serve soft drinks, cocktails, and snacks. I'd really recommend a visit!
Although I'm not a big fan of eating in mall restaurant, I have to admit that the Food Court at MBK, Bangkok's most famous shopping mall, is awesome! It's on the fifth floor, and when you enter you get a magnetic card which you use to charge all the food you order and then you pay when you leave. When I went, they had a promotion where they gave a free fruit cocktail to all foreigners who showed a passport. There is a huge variety of food stalls ranging from Thai to Japanese, Italian, Greek, Mexican, vegetarian, seafood, and more. It is perfect to go as a group as everyone will find their favorite food.
The Sawasdee House restaurant and hotel is part of the small empire of hotels based on Khao San Road. The Sawasdee House is located on Soi Rambuttri, which is a little calmer than Khao San. It stands out for its decor and friendly waiters. It's very cool at night, with great music and lighting.
The Soi Rambuttri Food Stalls, located only a few meters from the famous chaos of Khao San Road, is the best place to enjoy local Thai cuisine for an incredibly low price. You can find a bit of everything, but the most common dish is Pad Thai.
